Backyard Park
Hey Guys,

I'm making a backyard snowboard drop-in. It's an 8ft drop-in, and I have a few PVC rails to use with it. I want to make a jump, but not sure what I should do. Should I just make one out of snow, or make one out of wood that would be covered by the turf I'm using for the drop in? If I build one, it would be easier to exchange out features without having the jump to the side or having to rebuild it each time, but then I wouldn't be able to mess with the size like I would if I made it out of snow. Any ideas or opinions?

We used our old skate board ramps that we bought the kids. This was great as it also provided the take off ramp for the rail and box. You can always place wood or blocks under the ramp to increase the height if you need to.

This is a backyard jib so some concessions are required.

** a few of us forum members are hitting Alpine today if your interested and depending on your WI location. There is also a meet pending late Jan at Granite Peak **

Couldn't make it out to alpine today, but thanks for the invite! Where do you guys talk about planning the trips? I'd love to come out to Granite Peak. Thanks for the recommendation on the jump too.

Have a great time at Alpine! Wish I could make it.

Thinking about making a yard park myself.
